A sunny day with clear air and a day off for all of us means a long walk to see Mt. Fuji. And that’s what we did. So, I’ll spare you the long-winded things called words and allow you to look at the pictures.
One of the best views in the world, I think. What do you think? Did you enjoy the photos? What other places do you think are perfect for photographing? Let me know in the comments below.
The walk back home brought us up north to Izumi Ward in Yokohama, then back over to Shonandai in Fujisawa. We stopped for lunch, too.
These are some more farm pictures. You’ll notice some black fabric in one picture. Those are supposed to be scarecrows.
We passed by Kotohira Shrine. I’ve been there before, but it was about 4 years ago.
Here are the Yokohama Subway and Sotetsu Line bridges across the Sakai River going to Shonandai.
Now it’s Sakai River and some more farms next to the river. The third one shows rice hanging and drying.
Time for lunch. We stopped at Gusto and had a hamburg steak meal.
And back at Shonandai Station. Soon, it’s home.
Total distance was 12.98 km. I hope you enjoyed the posts today. Any comments are very welcome.
We arrived at our destination, Matano Park, and found a playground for Tommy to play at. She’s become very good at climbing. This park is in Totsuka Ward in Yokohama.
What’s interesting about this park is that it has an unusual appearance on Google Maps. Turns out it’s mostly a giant cemetery.
In this set of photos, we went down into the valley and saw a lot of rice fields. It’s harvesting time. We crossed the Katase River, saw a small shrine I can’t find the name of, then headed up the hill toward Matano Park. There’s a tower you can see in some pictures. That’s the library at the Yokohama College of Pharmacy.
She made it to 2.95 km! Great job!
Long name for a station, isn’t it? Well, here are the pictures.
Red and white spider lilies.
Nihon University. We saw that leaves are changing colour!
And finally, Mutsuainichidaimae Station.
Here’s Tommy (Tomoe) ready for our walk.
We’re going to a park that’s actually in Yokohama, but it’s not far from here. We’ve just never been there.
